I've tried using Roxio Support to find a solution to this, but they tell me it's not a problem. But I can attest it is a legacy problem back as far as Creator 9, maybe further.
When I create an audio project, often I want to crossfade music tracks. But I just want the music mixed together at their normal volume. I don't want any fades put into them, especially on the second track. But whenever I use the crossfade transition and although I specifically do not put in a fade, the second track ALWAYS begins at a lower volume (at least 3 or 4 db lower) and w/in about a second or second and a half comes up to full volume. I need the track to come in at full volume, but it always fades in -- again, not from zero volume, but definitely at a lower volume.
I do this alot, mixing live tracks in which I want the opening notes of the guitar (or whatever) of the second track to hit full volume over the applause fading out on the first track. Any solutions out there?
